In 1983, the musical revue Sophisticated Ladies, led by Dee Dee Bridgewater, made a stop at the Châtelet and celebrated Duke Ellington (1899-1974). Twenty years later, Laurent Mignard founded the Duke Orchestra and elevated it to the rank of “best active Ellingtonian orchestra” (according to the Duke Ellington Society).
In his new and ambitious two-volume Duke Ladies recording project, Laurent Mignard pays tribute to the women who inspired the maestro to write some of his most beautiful themes, from the fragrances of the Perfume Suite to orchestral frescoes, not to mention portraits such as Sophisticated Lady and Satin Doll. The Châtelet joins this vibrant tribute with a concert featuring an exceptional cast. From jazz, blues, opera or French song, the Duke Ladies will embody the multiple colors of Ellingtonian art, a rainbow of an evening symbolizing the eternal feminine.
